The Kennedy Heirs: John, Caroline, and the New Generation - A Legacy of Tragedy and Triumph by J. Randy Taraborrelli
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
From New York Times best-selling Kennedy historian J. Randy Taraborrelli comes his most astonishing Kennedy book yet. A unique burden was inherited by the children born to the original Kennedy icons: JFK and Jackie; Bobby and Ethel; Ted and Joan; and the rest. Raised against a backdrop of American history, their mandate was to be of service, just like their ancestors. Based on exclusive first-hand interviews, as well as oral histories from the JFK Presidential Library and the Ted Kennedy Institute, Taraborrelli takes his readers behind the scenes of a sweeping and epic family drama as these Kennedy heirs succeed and fail in ways both triumphant and heartbreaking. These are the Kennedy stories you’ve never heard before.
A former Secret Service agent recounts his shared experiences with the former First Lady before and after her husband's death, discussing the birth of John, Jr., and Jackie's first encounters with Aristotle Onassis.
